Kate Hudson dating JJ Watt

KATE Hudson is dating JJ Watt.

The 'Almost Famous' actress - who has sons Ryder, 12, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and Bingham, four, with former fiancé Matt Bellamy - recently enjoyed a date with the Houston Texans football player, which they both documented on Snapchat.

According to TMZ, JJ confirmed the couple were on a "date".

Although he has previously been linked to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, 27-year-old JJ has insisted that his "crazy schedule" doesn't leave him much time for dating.

He said: "People [I know] think that I've never dated before, or whatever. But I'm trying. I'm trying. I'm just unsuccessful. My schedule's so crazy and life's busy, it just hasn't worked."

Kate, 36, was most recently linked to Nick Jonas, 23, and he admitted they had an "unbelievable connection" but refused to confirm if they ever hooked up.

He previously said: "Kate's incredible. We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful. Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I'm not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection. Even now I have so much admiration and respect. She's amazing."
